Campus Life

At Florida Polytechnic University, you are not just a number. You are a member of a small, tight-knit campus community, valued as a unique individual who contributes to a very unique college experience. Because we’re a brand-new institution, having opened for class in August 2014, Florida Poly offers students the rare and exciting opportunity to shape culture and build college traditions from the ground up. Imagine revisiting campus in 10, 20 or 50 years to find a new generation leading the organizations you started or cheering for the mascot you helped to select.

Some of the organizations and activities students have already launched include game nights and movie nights, a submarine club, an annual Earth Day celebration, Humans v. Zombies tournaments, a cyber security club and more. Through the Student Government Association (SGA), students have the opportunity to start even more organizations and initiatives as well as present and discuss their ideas and concerns. “The SGA is the voice of the students. The SGA works to advocate for the students to the administration,” said Andrei Moss, a Computer Science major who became the University’s first SGA President in 2014.

The Office of Student Affairs supports all students and campus life at Florida Poly. Student Affairs oversees residential living, student activities and programming, leadership, multicultural outreach, counseling and health services. Your college experience is in your hands, and our staff is here to help you realize your visions.
